In-Line Hockey...wait do people still do that?

I seemed to gain a little interest at Saturday's game about this (Adam and Vic)...I go up to St. John's randomly during the week (normally from 8-10PM) and play inline hockey with a buddy of mine. We mainly just work on shoting/passing and an occasional one-on-one game. Anyway, we are planning on playing Wednesday (July 30th) around 8PM if anyone else is interested???

July 26th game?

Eh, I've been awol the past month and am itching to play. Sure I'll be huffing and puffing, but it'll be worth it. Who's in town this weekend and is up for playing (and allowing me a soft goal or two)?

Finalizing Roster.

Hi Gents,

Sorry I haven't been around. The combination of car trouble and my body feeling good has kept me away from the games the last couple of weeks.

Here is the current roster. I am going off the top of my head, but believe I have everyone. This leaves us a few short unless you guys have been training your asses off. If by chance I missed you, I… Continue

Volunteer Work Party

Hey everybody, last saturday someone from the church stopped by while we were playing hockey to talk to us about the use of the parking lot. Basically he pointed out they have been turning a blind eye to our board/goal storage, and the games in general, and he was asking if we would be willing to help them with some general cleanup around the buildings where we store our stuff.

I realize philanthropy/volunteerism isn't the strong suit of our group (unless you count putting strippers… Continue

Saturday 7/12 Hockey - Margarita Class at Reiner's BBQ?

Game on! Let us know if you're playing this weekend. If current trend of low numbers continues, we'll play at church; not to mention we only have one set of 'boards' to work with. Should we even bother with the school while we only have one set of boards?

Getting Mrashed on Targaritas 101: Also, at Reiner's BBQ I might set up a booth to explore the ambitious and varied world of margarita making. Join me in comparing and contrasting recipes and varieties of tequila, orange… Continue

Vancouver Tournament: Hotel Update

Room reservations had to be in by July 10th, and since I did not hear from anyone about wanting to do the reservations elsewhere, I reserved 6 total rooms.

The 6 rooms will allow for double/triple/quad occupancy, and obviously will be enough to house the current roster, since I believe we are at 15-18 players depending on Marshy etc...

We can figure out the rooming situations over the next week or so.

I will get the final roster up this week.

7/5/2008 Game - you in?

Good turnout last week given the heat and car show traffic. Played skins and shirts. Scott showed up for half hour of set up and 10 mins of play. That's dedication!

I've got no plans this 4th weekend. Anybody else want to play Saturday? Say so in the comments so we can gauge turnout.

Happy belated Canada day!
